Spencer Profile


Overview

Spencer is a tiny village located in the state of Nebraska. With a population of 423 people and just one neighborhood, Spencer is the 164th largest community in Nebraska.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some villages where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Spencer is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Spencer is a village of professionals, managers, and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Spencer who work in management occupations (18.23%), sales jobs (11.05%), and teaching (11.05%).

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 7.26% of the workforce. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce this is high compared to the rest of the county. These workers are often telecommuters who work in knowledge-based, white-collar professions. For example, Silicon Valley has large numbers of people who telecommute. Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.

Setting & Lifestyle

Spencer is a good choice for families with children because of several factors. Many other families with children live here, making it a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families. The village’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic success. Many people own their own single-family homes, providing areas for children to play and stability in the community. Finally, Spencer’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the country, making it one of the safest places to raise a family.

Residents of the village have the good fortune of having one of the shortest daily commutes compared to the rest of the country. On average, they spend only 16.60 minutes getting to work every day.

As is often the case in a small village, Spencer doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.

Spencer Demographics

In terms of college education, Spencer is substantially better educated than the typical community in the nation, which has 21.84% of the adults holding a bachelor's degree or graduate degree: 32.42% of adults in Spencer have a college degree.

The per capita income in Spencer in 2010 was $23,946, which is lower middle income relative to Nebraska and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $95,784 for a family of four. However, Spencer contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.

The people who call Spencer home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Spencer residents report their race to be White, followed by Black or African-American. Important ancestries of people in Spencer include German, Czech, Swedish, English, and Irish.

The most common language spoken in Spencer is English. Other important languages spoken here include German/Yiddish and Spanish.
